i'm brian shactman. this is "way too early." for those of you who don't know today is my first day officially filling willie's -- what are they 12, 13? big job to do. you don't know me that well or want to see the other skeletons in my tv closet i have a little more get to know me later in the sure. i'm not sure of everything they have. we do have a little bit of news to talk about this morning including some big changes on the way to the tv landscape. i'm not just talking about me being here. one well-known face stepping out of the spotlight while another is taking on a brand-new challenge and reveal the plans for barbara walters and seth meyers. in sports, sergio garcia, if you didn't see this, well, he doesn't like tiger woods very much. had a chance to take him down until he decided to look like me on the 17th at tpc sawgrass. highlights and lowlights later in sports. serious stuff, our top story, eight month s after the
2:31 am
attack in benghazi, the issue perhaps more highly charged than ever. republicans are calling to a special select committee to investigate how the administration handled the deadly raid. another gop lawmaker sugg t suggesting more whistle-blowers are likely to come forward. while the leaders of an independent review board will be asked to formally answer questions about their inquiry, critics say it came up short. this new push stems from revelations that the cia's original talking points used by ambassador susan rice in the days after the attack had undergone significant edits by senior administration officials. >> for the president's spokesman to say well there were only words or technical changes made in the e-mail is a flat-out untruth when we know any reference to act of terror or al qaeda were removed from those talking points and it was done at a deputy's meeting just before susan rice went --
2:32 am
>> would you call this a cover-up? >> i'd call it a cover-up. i would call it a cover-up in the extent that there was wi willful removal of information which was obvious. >> he said untruths by the way. he did not use the word lie. former defense secretary robert gates defending the administration's handling of the attacks in libya. >> based on everything i've read people really didn't know what was going on in benghazi contemporaneously, and to send some small number of special forces or other troops in without knowing what the environment was or threat was without having any intelligence in terms of what was going on on the ground i think would have been very dangerous and personally i would not have approved that because we just don't -- it's sort of a cartoonish impression of military capabilities and military forces. the one thing our forces are noted for is planning and preparation before we send
2:33 am
people in harm's way. and there just wasn't time to do that. >> meanwhile, a number of leading democrats on sunday suggesting the republican push to investigate benghazi is political and an attempt to discredit hillary clinton ahead of a potential run for president in 2016. meanwhile, turkish leaders say now is the time for international action against syrian president bashar al assad. the call follows a serious of car bombings that killed 46 people over the weekend in a turkish border town. the country's foreign minister is pointing the tinge at groups linked to syrian intelligence for the attack. turkey is directly feeling the impact as you might imagine of syria's civil war with more than 300,000 refugees crossing the border between the two countries. the irs is under fire accused of targeting conservative nonprofit groups for additional scrutiny for years. the independent agency already has apologized but there are a lot of questions yet to be answered this morning.
2:34 am
low-level employees at the cincinnati field office started looking into groups with either patriot and tea party in the title. about 300 in all and it dates back to 2010. some of the groups were targeted because they were critical of how the country was being run and other groups that were investigated were involved in educating americans on the constitution and the bill of rights. a draft for the inspector general's report obtained by the associated press shows senior officials including the head of the tax-exempt division were aware of the practice as early as 2011. "the new york times" reported the audit shows that she tried actually to shift the focus from just the conservative groups to all political advocacy groups. the criticism has been universal including comments from democrats and the aclu. they called for a governmentwide possible and apology from the president himself. >> this is truly outrageous and it contributes to the profound
2:35 am
distrust that the american people have in government. it is absolutely chilling that the irs was singling out conservative groups for extra review, and i think that it's very disappointing that the president hasn't personally condemned this and spoken out. >> before the ig's report comes to the public or to congress as required by law, it's leaked by the irs to try to spin the output. this mea culpa is not an honest one. >> the results of the full investigation are expected to be released later this week. now to the latest in the case of the ariel castro. of course, the man accused of abducting three young women and keeping them locked in his home for years in cleveland, ohio. while castro awaits trial his brothers are speaking out distancing themselves from him. initially you recall they were arrested along with him. the brothers were, though,
2:36 am
cleared of all charges and said in an interview had they known what he's accused of doing, they would have done the right thing. >> i couldn't never think of doing anything like that. if i knew that my brother was doing this, i would not be -- i would not nash in a minute i will call the cops because that ain't right, but, yeah, he's going to hunt me down because people are going to think pedro got something to do with this. >> also yesterday an attorney for the three young women held captive said they were recovering and doing well. he asked for privacy saying they would not say anything else until the criminal trial is over and, of course, we have no idea when that will be. police are searching for three suspects today after gunmen opened fire on a mother's day parade in new orleans injuring 19 people. the shooting occurred during the second line parade which not very uncommon in the city.
2:37 am
during the parade basically a brass bandlaecond line of people follow behind. according to police, there were no fatalities and most of the wounds are not life-threatening, although two 10-year-old children were grazed by bullets in good condition this morning. the police have not made any arrests and the fbi describes i as a flare-up of street violence. the three suspects were seen running from the scene with one being described as a male between the ages of 18 and 22 years old. now to business where wall street will be paying a lot of attention to data from the commerce department. last month sales dropped to its lowest levels since the fall of 2009. let's check in with steve sedgwick live from london. i guess if they're weak again does this mean the payroll tax hike is something we need to pay more attention to, huh? >> yeah, absolutely. i think bearing in mind and as i'm sure our viewers know full well, the u.s. economy is centered 70% around the consumer so the consumer is absolutely key so the retail sales for
2:38 am
april plus later week sales from jcpenney, macy's, walmart, kohl's, nordstrom all reporting late in the week and will get a gauges of the u.s. consumer plus house data and sentiment date that from the segment later in the week so the consumer is front and foremost this week. >> we haven't had a lot of companies coming public. it sometimes like we have a little momentum but this week especially, a fair amount of ipos? >> yeah, a fair amount of ipos so far this year. we've had 64 companies coming to market and they have raised a combined 17 billion u.s. dollars. now, that's exciting in itself. way more than we've seen throughout this financial crisis. what is very interesting, as well. from these ipoos, the 25 largest of those 64 have returned much more than the broader market, 22% from those 25 biggest ipos compared with the s&p put on a 14.5%, 15%.
2:39 am
it's alive and well, concern if we see renewed volatility it could dent enthusiasm. >> the dow ainge s&p pushing new highs. steve, have a great day. steve sedgwick live for us in london. entertainment world. barbara walters will officially announce her retirement plans today. of course, "the view," the 83-year-old has been in the industry for more than 50 years and back in 1976 she became the first to host an evening newscast. a lot of time for good-byes. she is not walking away until the summer of 2014 and will do the tour, you can bet on that. seth meyers tabbed to take jimmy fallon's seat. he will become the host early next year as, of course, fallon moves to "the tonight show." "late night" will continue to be taped in new york in the building that i am right now. to the movies where did "the
2:40 am
great gatsby" about much better than people expected. $50 million over the weekend. >> it's perfect. from your perfect irresistible imagination. >> sorry. i thought she was talking about me. the movie got mixed reviews. analyst expected it to take in a little more than 30 million but fans came out in droves to see leo. he took on the lead role in the adaptation of the literary classic but despite those numbers it did not take the number one spot. "iron man 3" gets that honor. robert downey jr.'s superhero flick took in $72 million. $285 million worldwide. really sad to say i have not seen any of those movies. i heard the first one is really good. still ahead on "way too early," tiger, notches another win but not without drama. what might be the most famous hole in all of golf. we'll show you sergio garcia's absolute kind of tough to watch
